  • My Sally Derg is afraid of Christmas lights. This is an inconvenient time for this phobia to rear its head.
  • A neighbor has an automatron (what the hell are those called?) penguin that lifts and lowers its top hat.
  • My dog cowered behind me when we rounded the corner and came face to face with the PENGUIN OF DEATH.
  • which was inconvenient as she weighs 90 pounds and she had to go through me to get behind me.
  • so I'm limping on a twisted knee.
  • she looked thoroughly sad about Hurting Mommy and wouldn't eat her treat until I told her I wasn't mad at her <-- I'm not lying!!
  • Hope Cat, my less than intelligent Siamese, believes the multi-colored lights on our roof line are exotic June Bugs that Must Be Destroyed.
  • she's been sitting at the back window creak-meowing to lure them closer.
  • for two hours.
  • Darthanne, the Serial Killer cat, is laying in a patch of sunshine ignoring all of us
  • there are two cotton tails at the front door. :((( (um, just the tails.)
  • I thought I had MRSA this weekend, turned out to just be a blister from a pair of Evil Shoes (there's a seam along the back ankle that literally ripped open my ankle. Good hell!)
  • I took them back and got a different pair that were worn today with no pain = success! *Hiro arms*
  • I am going to get a big ol' bowl of Hot and Sour soup today hoping that will keep me away from fajita nachos
  • my family is never ever going to speak to me again after I get this book out <-- positive thinking to make it come true

I meant to say Happy Hannukah yesterday, so please forgive. Happy remaining 7 Days!
Finally: name that movie. "Aw, don't sell yourself short, Judge. You're a terrific slouch."

Ohhh, share. Please. I love good H&S soup. Now I really want some.

Well, I'm running up to the market for some fresh bamboo shoots, so be here in an hour. *G*

Poor Sally Derg!

The description of Hope is cracking me up. Frankie has been making creak-meows at the swirling leaves of the afternoons. Maybe he thinks they're birds?

Cotton tails, like...there used to be bunnies attached to them? D:

If your family stops speaking to you, you would probably gain a whole two weeks of extra time in your year!

I'm thinking other than Beth, the family thing might not be so bad :)

This may be because there are times when I wish my family wouldn't speak to me. I have them trimmed down to a minimum though, so I can't really complain!
Dec. 5th, 2007 05:19 pm (UTC)
Trimming down to the minimum seems very wise!
Dec. 5th, 2007 04:40 pm (UTC)
Heeeee - Hope does that to swirling leaves at out back door, too!! (I keep trying to get a picture of her doing it, because she scoots up and you can see her pantaloons - hahaha!)

Probably the bunnies took their tails off, threw them at her, then ran to safety, not unlike a lizard? :(

AWwwwwww! My friend A., who was visiting the past weekend, has an American Eskimo Dog, so he has the cutest leetle pantaloon legs. He's small (though not as small as toy) so Sally might be like, "You're a baby, d'awww!" and try to push him down with her paw. :D

Yes, I agree with the bunnies. Or maybe they got their adult tails, and shed their beebee ones?

Sally Derg is so pathetic. *loves her*

Are you implying that Darthanne ate two bunnies for breakfast? She rocks.
Dec. 5th, 2007 04:41 pm (UTC)
She is SO pathetic. She's curled up under my desk, which means I'm sitting waaaaaaaay out with my arms sticking out to reach the keyboard. See: large dog. :D

SHE DID. Actually, I think they were her midnight snack, as she ate her cat food this morning when she came in... She's hard core, I'm telling you.

Who wouldn't be afraid of a ginormous hat tipping penguin? Why is that even Christmassy?

Those evil shoes are cute, but the new ones are cuter. So there.

I got some Tom Yum soup paste from the Oriental market, so I'm hot and souring it, too.

"my family is never ever going to speak to me again after I get this book out <-- positive thinking to make it come true" *crosses fingers and keeps the good thought*

I DON'T KNOW!! I suppose the Antarctic is where Santa vacations? (I'm one to talk - I'm not Christian, but I celebrate Santa-mas.)

OH MAN I MAY NEED TOM YUM SOUP. Dude, so delicious. I had some last friday with the freshest shrimp... MMMMM.
Dec. 5th, 2007 04:45 pm (UTC)
I'm guessing no men have seen the movie quote yet or else the answer would've screamed back across the internet. That SNL skit about how quotes from Caddyshack are an important part of male conversation is SO COMPLETELY TRUE.

And awwww on the cotton tails. I'm thinking of the weetle bunny family you had in your yard last summer...I've decided the cotton tails can't belong to them because they will be cute and furry and alive FOREVER.

THIS IS WHY YOU ROCK. "Tcha! Look at this buildup! Now, I want you to buff that wax off, them give them a shine with a nice chamois. Chop chop!"

"You'll get nothing and you'll like it!"

<3 Judge Smalls

The bunny tails DID NOT belong to the babies, because I would feel a shift in the universe towards chaos. (She goes hunting in a big field across the way - there are LOTS and LOTS of bunnies in this area. And coyotes and bobcats, too, which is why I don't normally let her out at night.)

The search for adequate shoes is a great waster of time and energy. I finally gave up and bought a pair of 8" logging boots, which are lovely things except for the fact that once they're on and laced I am basically committed to working for eight hours, and then, at the end of the eight hours, it's suddenly overwhelmingly apparent that I've been wearing boots that weigh seven pounds each all day. Not being an actual logger, I don't wear them every day

Why doesn't anyone make nice high-top sports shoes anymore? Or lace-up ankle boots with a 1.5 inch heel and no fucking zipper? Or old-lady Oxfords, like grandma and then hippy chicks used to wear?

Julia, shoes, they are a cursing and a byword
Dec. 5th, 2007 04:54 pm (UTC)
Oooh! Merrell does make those shoes!! Get thee hie to their website and you will see their ankle boots with laces! I love Merrell boots with all my heart, too. (And if you can stand to plunk down the change, Salomon boots will be the last boots you ever buy. I've had my hiking boots for going on 15 years - they STILL look brand new. Laces changed out? Five times. *G*)

I bet you could find Oxfords at a uniform shop - they're still standard issue shoes for all the uniform-schools here. (I love them, too.)
Dec. 5th, 2007 05:28 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the uniform shop hint; I'd forgotten they exist.

Merrills and I don't get on; I've got a totally destroyed pair in my closet. I used to wear these wonderous ankle boots from Santana of Canada called "Hazel" but they put in a damned zipper, and ruined them.

Julia, with epically bad feet, and that's before we kick in the whole "diabetic" aspect

<---I dreamed his penis was inside me last night.
Ahahaha, I love Sally Derg and Hope, and Darthanne is wicked scary but awesome.

Stoney, I am TIR'D. I was unable to get a popcorn tin last night BUT I did have a dream involving DB!sex so all in all, I win at life.

I have a "java chiller" with caramel and hazelnut from Sonic (2.70!) and it is making my mouth very happy. I highly recommend those over cheap ass popcorn, Lee. YOU'RE GETTING THE GOOD STUFF NEXT WEEK, BE PATIENT.

Why don't I ever dream about DB's dick?
Dec. 5th, 2007 09:01 pm (UTC)
I love you almost as much as I love the honey mustard popcorn.

*flails in excitement for popcorn for you*
Dec. 5th, 2007 06:14 pm (UTC)
Oh, poor Sally! Poor YOU! And funny Siamese cat. Pets are the best.

I am extremely confused about the Christmas penguin. And here I always thought the sled was pulled by reindeer. I guess flightless birds work just as well.

I love good hot and sour soup. But I am currently eating a chicken quesadilla which is also tasty.

Counting today, you still have eight days of Hanukah. Don't forget, Jewish holidays always start at sundown.
Dec. 5th, 2007 08:21 pm (UTC)
Wait... it didn't start last night? OH, I SEE. *hits head* Sometimes I'm slow. *g*

And since I realized I almost mailed you fudge in a Santamas box, I FINALLY found a Hanukkah-ish container and your fudge departs at 4pm my time.

Chicken quesadillas make me very happy, too. Maybe dinner....

I hate the inflatables and the animatronic thingies. <-- they remind me of Chuck E. Cheese. Plus, the inflatables are LOUD.

There is a house a few blocks over that has a musical light scheme, in that, you set your car radio to 107.3 and the lights are in time to their music. That's a lot of planning, there. (It's like that famous house online, but not as... bright.)

EEK to the Big Boy Santa! (That gave me a PERFECT visual, omg.) Hope likes to lay under the tree, which is very cute. Sally sniffs all the ornaments within reach.

(I love love love my shoes - I can't wear the slip on type, though, as I have narrow feet that slide around in them unless I wear two pairs of socks.)
Dec. 6th, 2007 05:56 pm (UTC)
I love your pets' holiday antics. We have two cats and full indoor Christmas decorations, and sometimes I wonder why I even bother turning on the TV :P
Dec. 6th, 2007 09:54 pm (UTC)
Heeeeee!! I love goofy animals.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
